While intelligence is one of the most talked about subjects in psychology , there is no standard definition of what exactly constitutes intelligence. Some researchers have suggested that intelligence is a single, general ability. Others believe that intelligence encompasses a range of aptitudes, skills, and talents.

The behavioral and social sciences provide a foundation for the knowledge and continuous learning that the intelligence community needs to provide the highest level of analysis, with applications that can be implemented now with modest cost and minimal disruption. As the intelligence community IC seeks to reduce uncertainty and provide warning about potential threats to the national security of the United States, it faces increasing demands for analyses that are accurate, actionable, and properly qualified, so that decision makers know how much confidence the analyses warrant. Producing those analyses requires great institutional and intellectual agility as threats emerge from new quarters and require different kinds and combinations of expertise.

Like most aspects of human behavior and cognition, intelligence is a complex trait that is influenced by both genetic and environmental factors. Intelligence is challenging to study, in part because it can be defined and measured in different ways. Most definitions of intelligence include the ability to learn from experiences and adapt to changing environments. Elements of intelligence include the ability to reason, plan, solve problems, think abstractly, and understand complex ideas. Many studies rely on a measure of intelligence called the intelligence quotient IQ. Researchers have conducted many studies to look for genes that influence intelligence.

There have been a number of approaches to the study of the development of intelligence. Psychometric theorists, for instance, have sought to understand how intelligence develops in terms of changes in intelligence factors and in various abilities in childhood. For example, the concept of mental age was popular during the first half of the 20th century. Thus, an average year-old would have a mental age of 12, but an above-average year-old or a below-average year-old might also have a mental age of 12 years. The concept of mental age fell into disfavour, however, for two apparent reasons. First, the concept does not seem to work after about the age of

Is intelligence determined by genetics?

Human intelligence is the intellectual capability of humans, which is marked by complex cognitive feats and high levels of motivation and self-awareness. Through intelligence , humans possess the cognitive abilities to learn , form concepts , understand , apply logic , and reason , including the capacities to recognize patterns , plan , innovate, solve problems , make decisions , retain information , and use language to communicate. As a construct and measured by intelligence tests , intelligence is considered to be one of the most useful concepts used in psychology , because it correlates with many relevant variables, for instance the probability of suffering an accident, salary, and more. According to a metastudy of educational effects on intelligence, education appears to be the "most consistent, robust, and durable method" known for raising intelligence. A number of studies have shown a correlation between IQ and myopia.

IQ scores are correlated with the morphology and activity of certain neurons in the human temporal cortex. You probably remember being at school as a child and learning how to do arithmetic, to read and comprehend stories, and to solve puzzles. These tasks may appear simple to you now, but they are actually quite demanding because they require a high level of brain processing power. For decades, scientists have been working out ways to quantify our ability to take in knowledge and apply it to new situations — in other words, our intelligence. They have also explored the characteristics of the human brain that contribute to individual differences in performance on such tasks. Many hypotheses have been advanced to tie neural features to individual differences in test results.

For much of its history, the focus has been on differences between people, on what it means for one person to be more intelligent than another, and how such differences might have arisen, obscuring efforts to understand the general nature of intelligence. These are obviously fundamental questions, still widely debated and misunderstood.

Human Intelligence: What single neurons can tell us

IQ and Human Intelligence. By Nicholas J. Oxford: Oxford University Press, More than any other trait, it is associated with controversy, both scientific and political, which was seen most recently after the publication of The Bell Curve Herrnstein and Murray How can something as nebulous as g be measured?

Well, as it turns out, it may be possible to increase your intelligence with the right kind of intellectual training. Research suggests that there are various ways to develop some of the most crucial skills related to human intelligence. This measurement was popularized in the s by a French psychologist named Alfred Binet. Common standardized IQ tests include:. Instead, IQ testing can be used as the first step in diagnosing other mental health conditions and learning disabilities.

ГЛАВА 106 К окну комнаты заседаний при кабинете директора, расположенной высоко над куполом шифровалки, прильнули три головы. От раздавшегося взрыва содрогнулся весь комплекс Агентства национальной безопасности. Лиланд Фонтейн, Чед Бринкерхофф и Мидж Милкен в безмолвном ужасе смотрели на открывшуюся их глазам картину. Тридцатью метрами ниже горел купол шифровалки.

Он сразу же узнал этот голос. - Директор! - воскликнул он и, подойдя к Фонтейну, протянул руку.  - С возвращением, сэр. Вошедший не обратил на его руку никакого внимания. - Я д-думал, - заикаясь выговорил Бринкерхофф.  - Я думал, что вы в Южной Америке.

Всякий раз включался автоответчик, но Дэвид молчал. Он не хотел доверять машине предназначавшиеся ей слова. Выйдя на улицу, Беккер увидел у входа в парк телефонную будку. Он чуть ли не бегом бросился к ней, схватил трубку и вставил в отверстие телефонную карту. Соединения долго не. Наконец раздались длинные гудки. Ну давай .

Я читал электронную почту Танкадо уже в течение двух месяцев. Как ты легко можешь себе представить, я был шокирован, впервые наткнувшись на его письмо Северной Дакоте о не поддающемся взлому коде, именуемом Цифровая крепость. Я полагал, что это невозможно. Но всякий раз, когда я перехватывал очередное сообщение, Танкадо был все более и более убедительным. Когда я прочитал, что он использовал линейную мутацию для создания переломного ключа, я понял, что он далеко ушел от нас .

Он решил сменить тактику: - Я из специальной группы, занимающейся туристами. Отдайте кольцо, или мне придется отвести вас в участок и… - И что? - спросила она, подняв брови в притворном ужасе. Беккер замолчал. Он опять перегнул палку.

Дэвид Беккер смотрел на экран прямо перед. У него кружилась голова, и он едва отдавал себе отчет в происходящем. На экране он видел комнату, в которой царил хаос.
